"Vodoun" plays on the contrast between soulful voices from Benin and the porn grooves of Chenard Walcker. The sound is rough, close to saturation. So Faders up !
Run time 40:29Label / Recorded by Chenard Walcker
Chenard went to Benin (Western Africa) years ago. He bought there some tapes by two traditionnal singers, Le Roi Alokpon and Alekpehanhou. All the voices of "Vodoun" were sampled from these two tapes.
Benin is where is practiced the rite of Vodoun. It's also historically the place from where the slaves were sent to America. That's how Vodoun was imported to Haiti, and it evolved to Voodoo.
